I like him too. Although he's an older presenters he connects with younger anchors,like Emma. Here's some interesting info from sky's website:

''With an amateur ?ham? radio and television transmitting licence to his name, Allan?s passion for radio is clear and he is an avid collector of wireless radio sets and gramophones. In his spare time, he also makes full use of his Private Pilot?s Licence. He admits to a passion for all things Bollywood and has surprised more than a few people with his knowledge of Hindi. ''

Thanks for that info. Very interesting to find out about off screen life. Allan can take me for a flight if needs a passenger. I love flying and would love to get a pilots licence. My dream job was to be a pilot but I foolishly chose solicitor

Been good to see Allan back over the last few days. Paula and Allan were good together over the weekend which proves the "old" (as in been with skynews a long time) presenters are the best and most professional!

Yes, I like Allan King's presenting style. It just goes to show these 'old newscasters' can mix with the younger ones easily. How long do you think Allan has being at Sky News? It must be at least since 1994, that I know of.
